(1) No courses may be double counted between a major and a minor programme. In such cases, required course(s) can be replaced with elective course(s) to fulfil the unit requirement for this programme.
(2) Students of Faculty of Science are not allowed to use MATH1025 to fulfil the Minor requirement. They are required to take another elective course.
(3) BSc (Hons) in Computer Science students are not allowed to use MATH1205 and MATH2005 to fulfil the Minor requirement. They are required to take another elective course.
